4 Times PETA Shut It Down in 2014

Check out these four times that PETA supporters have stepped up to the plate to confront cruelty:

1. PETA supporters shut down the National Institutes of Health (NIH) director’s keynote speech

At an event featuring the NIH director, Dr. Francis Collins, protesters spoke up for baby monkeys who are tormented and slated to be killed in cruel and worthless taxpayer-funded psychological experiments conducted at an NIH laboratory.

2. PETA member shuts down Air France’s bid for more investors

A PETA member grabbed the mic during an Air France meeting and announced that the airline is a bad investment because it’s notorious for shipping primates for use in labs. Attendees of the investor-recruitment conference were stunned.

3. PETA activists shut down SeaWorld’s deceptive Rose Parade float

Nineteen PETA activists were arrested at the 2014 Rose Parade for protesting the abuse taking place at SeaWorld’s parks. Ironically, the “orcas” on SeaWorld’s float traveled farther on the Rose Parade route than the real orcas imprisoned at SeaWorld are able to on any given day.

4. PETA supporters shut down a BCBG Max Azria executive’s Q&A session

At the Los Angeles “How to Make It in Fashion” Conference (aka “#FashionistaCon”), two PETA supporters took the mic during a presentation by the chief creative officer of BCBG Max Azria and demanded that the company join the dozens of others that have stopped selling fur and angora wool.
